Another fabulous week in Year 3. We started our week with sports coaches Tom and Tom (we won't forget their names at least), where they introduced us to hockey. We were amazing! Not only were we fantastic listeners, but we picked up the required skills really quickly.
In Science, we have been learning about bones and how they vary in size depending on who/what they belong to. We then carried out an experiment in groups, exploring how the diameter of a paper tube affected the amount of weight it could support.
We are so proud of the children and how quickly they have settled into their new classes - they have blown us away!
We have had a very busy week getting to know our adults and our new classmates and have quickly found our way around the junior school building (and into the swimming pool!).
In Maths, we have been using concrete resources to explore place value. We were 'whizzy mathematicians' and enjoyed looking at 3-digit numbers.
We have had many opportunities to use drama within English and Health and Wellbeing. Our new English unit, based on the short animation 'Dream Giver', is very exciting and we have been able to make some fantastic comparisons between the film and extracts from The BFG by Roald Dahl.
In Geography, we have been using the atlases to locate and identify the oceans and continents. We worked so well with our partners.
27th May 2021 Roman Day: What a fabulous day we had in Year 3! Making and eating Roman pancakes with apple, dates and honey, learning how to write our names using the Roman alphabet, singing the Roman numeral song, making Roman mosaics and finding out what the Romans did for us! We hope you enjoy our Roman day pictures.
18th May 2021: This week, Year 3 children have been bringing in plants and seeds to make our year 3 garden look amazing. Thank you to all the year 3s who have brought in and planted so far. Some of the plants have gone straight in the garden area and seeds and veggies have been put in the poly tunnel.

2nd October 2020- Poetry Day-Year 3 took inspiration from Allan Ahlberg's 'Heard it in the playground,' to write their own versions- 'Saw it in the Jungle.'
In Science we tested out which shape was the strongest to see why are bones are cylindrical.

We have had a great start to our new term. The children have all settled in really well and are enjoying spending time with their friends and are keen to learn.
Just a little note to say if your child has not received their reading record yet, don't worry they will get one in the next couple of days.
PE is on Thursday and Friday so please remember to bring in (named) PE kit, no earrings (or bring own tape), long hair tied back.
Art shirts can be brought in and left in lockers.
Two letters have been sent home-
1. For setting up payments
2. Home pick ups

Monday 22nd June - A message from the Year 3 staff
Good morning Ash, Elm and Oak classes,
We hope you are still having fun at home and had a good time at Easter. The weather has been good and is set to get even better so try and enjoy the garden if you can or when you get out for your daily exercise.
We have been thinking of some great work for you to do this term and you will find it in the new folder at the top, 'Summer term week 1.'
You can also go on the new BBC learning page- BBC Schools out, Learnings not !
It looks really great with some fab 20 minute lessons.
Take care and have fun. We miss you all!

Good morning everyone. This week we have got some fun Easter activities for you to have a go at. Don't forget to have a look at your longitudinal study if you have started. If not have a go!
You may like to have a go at making some Easter treats (you will need an adult to help you). If you haven't got all the ingredients, you can be creative e.g. cornflakes or rice crispies instead of shredded wheat.
These eggy words are fun . Why not draw a picture for each one. Can you think of anymore? Why not write an eggciting story using some eggy words.
Here are a few short stories and poems you may like to read. Why not have a go at writing your own.
You may still like to do some maths.
Wednesday 1st April:
Good morning Ash, Elm and Oak classes, we hope you are still enjoying yourselves and working hard from home.
Here are some more tasks to keep you learning and having fun.
English: Read the myth Arachne the Spinner. You could also write the story in your own words with illustrations.
Here are the year 3/4 spelling word list. Why not take 5 or 10 each week and learn them. You could make pyramid words, write the letters in different colours, use them in sentences. Any way that helps you remember them.
Guided Reading: Read the Greek myth and complete the tasks.
Science: See how much you have learnt in your 'Materials' topic by having a go at the year 3 quiz. Answers attached.
Maths: Here are some multiplication and division problems and don't forget to go on Rockstars.
History: Why not draw or even make your own Iron Age village. Here are some ideas.
Thursday 26th March 2020.
Hello lovely year 3s. We hope you are enjoying your home school. As the weather has been so lovely, we hope that you have taken the opportunity to get some fresh air. Why not start a Longitudinal study of your own. Choose an area of the garden to study and look at the changes that occur each week. You could draw some pictures or take photos. It would be really great to share these when we get back to school. If you can't get out, you could see the changes from your window.
Hello year 3s. We hope that you are enjoying your learning pack that you received on Friday. Remember to keep learning and having fun while you are off. You could try and start your day with a reading activity, followed by some English and then timetable yourself in a play time. After play you could do a maths activity from the pack and also go onto Rockstars. After lunch you could do one of the following Science, History, Geography, RE, Art or PE.
We will be posting regular extra ideas on the website so keep checking everyday.
